Review: Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition

When we bought into the promise of next-generation gaming in 2013 with the launch of the PS4 and Xbox One, I doubt any of us thought we'd be playing remasters of last-generation games four years later. Here we are, though, with yet another ...   read

Review: Paradigm

Paradigm is a game that asks the player to contemplate some tough philosophical quandaries. Its story, which revolves around the concept of genetically engineering perfect prodigal children for the wealthy ruling class, forces the play...   read

Review: HackyZack

I can't say I've even thought about hacky sacks in any capacity over the last decade. They were a massive fad in the '90s that took the world by storm. There was an inherent joy in maneuvering a sack of beans through the air that clicked im...   read

Review: A Rose in the Twilight

Did you know in the original version of The Little Mermaid, when the central character gets her legs, every step she takes feels as though she is walking on knives? And instead of marrying the prince at the end, she dies and turns into seaf...   read

Review: Yooka-Laylee

There are a lot of bad mascot platformers out there, but you'll have to pry them from my cold, dead hands. Many a night, both as a youth and an adult, were spent scouring cartoony countrysides looking for that one last musical note I n...   read

Review: PaRappa the Rapper Remastered

Beloved PaRappa the Rapper -- the game credited with birthing the rhythm game genre -- has kicked and punched its way to the PS4 for its 20th anniversary. A vestige of its time, PaRappa represents a colorfully wacky, beanie-wearing, rap-hap...   read

Review: Mario Sports Superstars

CJ takes a long drag on his cigarette, slowly letting the smoke fill his already weakened lungs. He glances down at his whiskey sour, nearly empty. Exhaling with a small cough, he stirs the one remaining ice cube with his middle finger befo...   read

Review: MLB The Show 17

For as long as I can remember, since before my time at Destructoid, I've been jettisoning off sports reviews. They're not only niche from a personnel perspective, but they also require a certain degree of dedication and knowledge, despite t...   read

Review: Digimon World: Next Order

I’ve been jokingly crediting the original Digimon World as my all-time favorite game for years, all the while secretly hoping that someone would agree with me and reminisce. There was something uniquely charming about the first entry ...   read

Review: Night in the Woods

I'm not sure how to describe Night in the Woods. Even after playing through the game twice, every attempt at defining it feels wrong. I want to say it's a silly 2D platformer almost as much as I think it's a soulful adventure game. Other ti...   read

Review: Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight

I'm pretty disappointed in myself for not noticing the Momodora series before. The fourth title in the series, Reverie Under the Moonlight, has been out on PC for a year now but has made its way onto PlayStation 4. Instantly catching my att...   read

Review: Toukiden 2

Games of the hunting genre, often referred to as “Monster Hunter clones,” are still among those foreign video game curiosities that just can't seem to grab western audiences the way it has in Japan. One of the main reasons why i...   read

Review: Thimbleweed Park

Thimbleweed Park was Kickstarted back in 2014 and promised a brand new game in an old genre, a return to the classic point-and-click adventure titles produced by LucasArts in the late '80s and early '90s. The title has an impeccab...   read

Review: Persona 5

When I was a kid, the Persona series was on the fringe of a niche. I had to be introduced to it on the original PlayStation by way of my cousin, who subsequently went on to show me Wild Arms and a few other classics. But after the resoundin...   read

Review: The Walking Dead: A New Frontier: Above the Law

As a multi-media franchise, The Walking Dead is at its best when the overarching tale of survival against the undead and/or the murderous community de jour is working in conjunction with smaller, compelling stories of regular people in...   read

Review: Rain World

I have a known fondness for difficult games. When applied correctly, adversity and challenge can raise a game to another level. I've gleefully lapped up the absurdities and frustrations of titles like Darkest Dungeon and the Binding of Isaa...   read

Review: Hollow Knight

I got my Nintendo Switch day one and I've put around 10 hours into The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the latest game from my favorite series. Not because I don't love it, but because I've been obsessed with Hollow Knight. It is that ...   read

Review: Dark Souls III: The Ringed City

Well, it looks like this is it. Although From Software is billing it as the "close of the age of fire," Dark Souls III: The Ringed City could be the last taste of Souls for a long while. It's a journey that's lasted over eight yea...   read

Review: Kona

A lot has changed since I first previewed Kona. Back then, it was called Kona: Day One, much of the play area was cordoned off, and the survival elements just hung there in the background. But even so, it had something special already in pl...   read

A good old fashioned Nintendo Switch accessory review roundup/slobberknocker

[Update: More accessory reviews have been added.] Now that the shiny new Nintendo Switch is out, it's time to put a bunch of accessories to the test. If you're curious how some third-party (sanctioned or non-sanctioned) peripherals measure ...   read

Review: Has-Been Heroes

Roguelikes are supposed to be addicting pick-up-and-play experiences that have players doing 'just one more run' before realizing they've been playing for hours on end. After over 10 hours, I can't bear to play anymore. Every time I'm about...   read

Review: Little Inferno (Switch)

The rise of Facebook in the late '00s shifted how people use the internet. With the gradual shift away from simply being a networking site, game developers were given a new platform to create games on. Sadly, most of these developers (*coug...   read

Review: Macbat 64

I've never pitched a game to someone with a prototype, but I'd imagine Macbat 64 isn't far off from what publishers would have seen when looking at prototypes for Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong 64. That is to say, bite-sized levels...   read

Review: Everything

At first glance, a game with a title like "Everything" seems like it might be difficult to describe. Like trying to pitch a show about nothing. Fortunately, things get quite a bit easier if you break it down a bit. Everything is a game abou...   read
